Tyler Lee Corty, 18, loving son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend, said his last farewell on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at his home.

A senior of Palmyra High school, he was a young man of many talents. With his athletic nature, he was involved in soccer, gymnastics, wrestling, football, track, and as a hobby, he enjoyed riding dirt bike with his family. He received numerous awards, including winning 1st place in a talent show, “Lebanon’s Got Talent”, back in 2013. Not only was he athletic, but he was also very creative. He took part in numerous plays, and enjoyed writing entertaining stories. However, if you were to ask friends and family to describe him, you would notably hear how very kind and funny he was, always having a keen way to make you laugh.
